A culinary institution of Singapore for over 60 years, Kim’s Place has opened in Dubai as Kim’s Singapore Seafood in the heart of Al Seef promenade.
Offering Dubai a taste of the lion city with quintessential ethnic favourites, the Singaporean eatery officially opened its doors on 13 August, in partnership with Warner Brothers for the premier of the summer blockbuster movie, Crazy Rich Asians.
Setting the paramount for authentic Singaporan meals masked in a modern setting, the new opening’s menu offers an explosion of flavours and colours that can only be achieved with old-school cooking techniques for that dose of nostalgia in every bite.
Starters include salted egg fried fish skin, fried prawn paste chicken wings, and soups like hot & sour soup with shredded chicken and braised superior soup with crab meat. There is also a variety of fish cooked to differing flavours and styles, along with a long line-up of signature mains that include singapore chilli crab, steamed shell scallops with garlic, black pepper lobster, crispy cereal prawn, sambal kang kong and a variety of beef and chicken and egg-based dishes.
“Dubai is well versed with Asian cuisine, particularly that of the Japanese fusion variety. We are excited to shift the pace of how Asian cuisine is perceived and to give this Singapore favourite an international future with Kim’s Singapore Seafood. The wide choice of aromatic flavours and carefully curated cocktails will make a big impression on experience seekers and food lovers. Our aim is to offer premium league dishes at an affordable price point so diners don’t feel they need to break the bank for a good night out,” said Sameer Purain, managing director of Spice Quay Restaurant LLC.
The new eatery and bar promises authentic Singaporean food as well as an extensive menu of signature drinks infused with authentic South East flavours, such as coconut pandan jam, galangal root, ginger sheet, basil, and elder flower. The chic interiors seats up to 166 guests, who are in for a unqiue and memorable culinary and cultural experience amidst murals, peranakan design, and botanical walls.
Kim’s Singapore Seafood is the maiden venture of Spice Quay, the dedicated food and beverage division in the Middle East of family-owned Uptron Group of Companies. Spice Quay aims to bring new concepts and dining experiences that are currently unfound in the UAE.
